Crochet Quilt using Fabrics

Welcome back to The Crochet Crowd. I’m your host Mikey. Today we’re going to show you how to do the fleece, with the flannel, and the crochet, and make a baby quilt. Just like so. So what I’m gonna be doing in today’s tutorial, is that after I’ve just explained how to do this. The concept of doing a major afghan, with just one piece of fleece, is the exact same way of preparing all the little pieces, in order to crochet around the edge of actual fabric. So it’s actually a really easy thing to do. So if I peel it back, you’ll notice that I put fleece on the back of this here. So this not only got the layer of the fleece, but you have the layers of the panel’s here, and the crochet border on top of that. So I use Caron Simply Soft Yarn. So let me explain how to do this, and then I’m going to pop you on another tutorial here. And this is the demonstration then, on how to be able to cut them, and what things that you need to look for, when applying any kind of borders to existing fabric. So the baby blanket is made up of nine squares, that are identical in the same size. And all I just had to do was commit to a certain size, and get it done. So I just kinda mix some different prints together. Made it really kind of cute. I was very conscientious on how the patterns were turned. So sometimes as you can see this was a vertical here, but in the other time I used it, it was horizontal. So you have a really cool opportunity. So the first thing that you need to do, is that you need to prepare your squares, in order to have the crochet border added to it, and I will demonstrate that in a little bit. So, you just have to apply that, and then you treat each one of these finished squares, as if it’s a granny square, and apply. The thing about it, is that you have just to watch the, the counts, and as you’re going all the way around, because you’re gonna want to join it . So once you get all the way around once, it’s now prepared to be attached, as you go. So I did a join as you go technique in order to line everything properly. So the regular granny square concept would work for that, and then what I did for the end then, is that I just did a nice border. So what you want to do, is that you wanna prepare everything upfront. So get all of your squares cut to the size that you would like to do. And you go about one inch from the border that, uh for your skip cutter, when you go to do that, and you fold it back and behind. So if you were to look at this particular idea from the back end, you would see that this fold, of this material is on the backside. So once you have all them cut, then you’re gonna skip cut all of them, and make sure you that you take your corner piece, of a diagonal, so that you don’t have any bunching going up on the edges. And then, you just then, crochet, uh you skip cut it, and then you crochet around, and then just put it aside, and get all of your squares done. Just because I did a baby version, doesn’t mean you have to do baby version. You could do as many squares as you want to, and it get as big as you need to. The only thing if you’re gonna apply fleece to the back, you gotta make sure that you have wide enough fleece in order to do that. So once this was all completed, and I put all my 9 together, I just stopped, right there, and then I got a piece of fleece to match the same size. And I’ll demonstrate on how to lay this project down on top of your fleece in order to get a measurement. Again, it’s a one inch distance from the corner, and then you just be able to add your particular border to it. Just like you see for the fleece, and then you attach it at the same time. So you will attach it at the same time of your project, so that it’s all one complete unit. Then at the very end, if you look really carefully, you’re going to notice, and it’s really hard to see it. I can feel it. It’s right here. Sorry, where is it? It’s in the back section right here. You’ll see it, really quite carefully. And the nice thing is so hard to see, that it’s hard to for me to say. So here’s something right here. So what this is here, is that you’ll notice that your fleece, and your squares, will be like separated from each other. So right where you do your joins, you go straight in with the same color, and then through your fleece, and back out, and then hide in your loose ends. So where it’s attached with the fleece, is attached exactly here. So in the middle it’s not attached to the fleece, but it is right here. So this allows the fleece to actually work in conjunction with it, without actually, um like pillow, pillowing out on you. So this is a really kind of unique concept. So what I’m gonna do for you, is that the concept to do, this is exactly the same, as a preparation, and everything for doing the other project that I’m about to show you, with the larger blanket. The only difference is, is that you’re just gonna use smaller squares, and convert them into like a granny square concept, join them, and then you can just apply your fleece in the same manner. The border that you see here, is just creativity. It’s just something I came up with at the same time, and I thought it was a lot of fun, and it looked really good. So what I wanted to do is, that I looked at my squares here, determine the different colors. I was pretty consistent as you can see, within the different colors as I did it too, for consistency. And I let really, the, the prints really shine bright. So without further adieu, I’m going to now put for you the tutorial on how to apply fleece, to a crochet project. So once you get, uh like a square done, and cut, it’s actually the same process as putting on your borders, and then you just treat it like a granny square. And then once you’re ready for that, then just refer to it again, to get your bigger fleece, to attach to your project, and then you’re good to go. So this is a really neat concept. I think it’s almost like really super, super awesome. So you got the crochet. You’ve got the fabric. You got the fleece. On tops here, these were flannel, if you want to know that. And but, I would recommend that you use um, fleece, it’s just a lot more easier to work with, and it’s a lot more thicker at the same time. So I’m gonna forward you to that tutorial right now, right here, and uh, stay tuned, and I’ll see you again real soon. Welcome back to The Crochet Crowd, as well as my friends over at Today we’re going to show you how to apply fleece, to any existing crochet project that you have. Today is the ins and outs, of applying fleece, to your crochet. So you may have noticed online, that some charities actually take fleece from Joann Fabrics and Crafts, of course. They’re known for their various selections, just like this Marvel Comics that you see here. This kind of fabric is available at Joann, and I think that it’s just a smorgasbord of great ideas, just waiting to be used in crochet. So what we notice with crochet with charity, is that some people actually cut up squares for the actual charities, and they just crochet around it. But how do you exactly do that? We’re going to cover that today. There’s also an idea where, crochet is not always the warmest. It all depends where you live of course. And the way to make them nice and toasty, is to apply fleece to the back of a project, in midway of working on your project. So today what we’re going to do, is show you all the tools that you’re going to need in order to do this concept. And I’m gonna take this Marvel Comics, that I picked up at Joann Fabrics and Crafts, and apply it to an existing project, right here. So today, is all about what you need to know, in order to apply fleece, to your project. So what you’re going to need, in order to do this process, is that you’re going to need a cutting board. You obviously wanna save anything underneath the table, from being cut. So use a cutting board, in order to do that. You’re also going to need a long straight edge, in order to follow up. There are different kinds of things, and all of these tools are available at Joann Fabrics and Crafts as well. You’re going to need a roller cutter. And there’s different brands out there. This one happens to be a Fiskars, and on there you’ll see that there’s actually a skip cutter on there. So there’s going to be one when you go to buy it, as a straight cutter. Just like so. But this one is called the skip cutter, and what we’re going to do is, very carefully, because these are extremely sharp, is that you’re going to just change these over. If you’re gonna get very serious about this, I would buy two of these, and keep one as a skip cutter, and one as a regular cutter, so that you don’t have to change them out, in order to not cut yourself. These are extremely sharp. You’re also going to need your crochet hook that you were doing your project with, if you’re going to do it that way. And also you’re going to need a much smaller one, because the skip cutter creates a small hole, within your fleece, that you’re going to need to get it into. And the major hook that we’ve been working with, in order to do our project, is to big. You’re also gonna need a good pair of scissors that have not been cutting anything else. So nice good fabric pair of scissors. These are by Westcott. Again, it’s all depending on what you need. So then you’re just gonna need your yarn, in order to go all the way around. But the first thing we need to do, is that we need to prepare, the fleece, in order to be cut properly. So let’s do that first. So the first thing that we’re going to need to do is to prepare the fleece, in order to be cut. But what size exactly do we need? So what we want to do, is that it doesn’t matter if the fleece is upside down at this point or not. This is the good side of it. You’ll notice that the back of the fleece is not as defined. You can see it’s not as clear of photo as this one. So this is the side that you’ll want to have sticking out of your afghan, when you’re going to do it. So what we need to do, is that we need to just make sure that this is nice and flat, and I’m just going to move over, and just flatten it back out. And you’ll need a nice big surface for that. And you’re gonna take your other project, that you’ve been working with, and you want to lie it down, on top of the project. So you can either measure it, and cut it, or you can lay it down. So the goal for you at this point. Let me turn this for your convenience. So you can see it upside, in your direction. So the goal is, is that you want to be able to save your fabric, from using too much fabric. So you want to get close to the edge, of what you have here, but you don’t want to go all the way, because you don’t want the writing that appears with the licensing, to be on the project. So what we’re gonna do, is that we’re just gonna lay it nice and flat. And we’re gonna prepare this to be cut, and we have to make sure that the fleece is laying nice and flat, and this project here, is the size that you’re gonna want it, so it doesn’t want to buckle, when you’re done. So the next thing we need to do, is that we need to cut the actual fleece, in order to match. So what you wanna do is, that you want the fleece to be about one inch bigger than the entire project itself. So I’ve got about one inch over on this side. I’ve got writing from the Marvel here, that I’m gonna cut out. And then I’ve got a little bit extra here, in the top. I also want to make sure that the design in the fleece, is going to match exactly what I want. So make sure that it’s lined up properly. So what we have here, is that we have this roller blade that we’re gonna roll, but currently there is a skip cutter on there, and we’re gonna change that out. These things actually kind of scare me. So you could either use pinking shears if you want to, but if I was to do this on a more long-term basis, I would actually have one blade, or one tool for each, just to make sure that I don’t have to change these very often. Now I’m not trying to say that to be uh making anybody afraid. I’m just being honest. So here’s what the skip cutter looks like here, and let me just walk up to the camera, and show you what it looks like. So here are the two blades that we’re gonna be using, and so this is a roller blade here, rotary blade, and it’s solid, and so therefore when I go to roll, it’ll cut everything that is in the way. This one here is called the skip cutter, and right where there is no blade at all, it leaves that, so that it’s not cut. So right where it has the points, is exactly where it’s going to cut into the fleece, as you go. So you’ll need a roller cutter, as well as a skip cutter, and these are available at Joann as well. So this is the rotary cutter, and this is the blade, and all you’re just gonna do, is match it up to the middle hole. Just like you see here. And on the top side, that you can see the entire blade, you’re going to apply the guide, and this that prevents you from getting your hands caught into it as you’re rolling it. So it stays on the top side, and goes all the way through the tool. Just like so. And then all you’re just gonna do, is take the other one, and there’s a screw that’s coming out of the back, and you’re gonna put that on, and then that protects you, from accidentally cutting yourself. Just like that. So when you go to use this, all you’re just gonna do, is that you’re going to push this down, and it releases it, down into the blade, and when you’re not using it, just simply push the button, and it snaps back up, so that you don’t have to hurt yourself, when it’s not in use. So what I’m gonna do now for you, is that I’m going to apply my cutting board underneath the project, so just slide it up underneath, so it protects your tabletop. And now it’s just about one inch. You know what? Its fleece. It’s very forgiving, if you’ve screwed this up in any way. And laying down your straight edge, you wanna go about one inch away from the actual edge of the project. Just like you see here. So I know it’s hard to see from that particular angle. And all I’m just gonna do, is that I’m gonna take the roller cutter, and just glide it along, but I’ll bring you up closer to see that. So with my blade down, and it’s about one inch, I’m just kind of eyeing it up, and all I’m just gonna do, is take my roller cutter and just open it. So it’s clicks down, and I’m just gonna go right to the top, and I’m just gonna roll. Just following the edge, pushing down very firmly It’s not one of those ones where you want to go over it twice. So just follow it along, and stop when the board runs out, and so if I pull it away at this point, this should be a nice clean cut, as you see. And you know what? If you don’t push down hard enough, you do end up with that, but because it’s at the end, not a big deal. So, it’s nicer to have a nice straight edge to work with, and what you want to do is trace your whole project, like that. And then we’re gonna deal with the corners, because there’s a special technique for that. (music playing) Before we change to the skip cutter, we need to use the solid one, one more time. So right in the corners, if you’ve ever wrapped Christmas presents, and you have stuff left over, when you go to do the fold, you’ll notice that you’ll have extra paper left over. Same thing with fleece. So whatcha wanna do, is that your board will be marked in one inch, and if you don’t have a board, just mark it about one inch, and just eye it up like this, and just simply cut that out. And you’ll wanna do all four corners like that. So what you’re doing, is you’re removing out, the final piece like this, so when it folds over, you don’t end up with a big, uh bunch of fabric in the corner. Okay, so now that all four sides are cut with the chamfer on the end, we need to change out the blade, from being the rotary cutter, to the skip cutter. And very carefully, just undoing the contraption, and putting this, uh the rotary cutters aside somewhere safe that you won’t hurt yourself with it. And it just all comes apart. So once I’ve taken off the back, the guide will just pop off. I’ve never cut myself with one of these. Is just, I’m very cautious. And then you take out the blade, and put it somewhere safe. So now we’re gonna switch it back out. And we’re now going to put the skip cutter on, and now the skip cutter is gonna create the holes in the fleece. So lining it back up to the hole of the actual cutter. Just like you see. So it’s got the hole. You put the guide back on. And then just put it on to the back, like so, just screw it back on. And again, I would recommend you get two of these tools, instead of having to do this all the time. Because then you can really whip through a lot of charity projects, really quite easily. And once everything is nice and secure in, the skip cutter is then available to you. And this is what it looks like, and then when you pop it out, you can see that it’s going to skip, and cut, certain holes on a equal pace. So let’s uh begin to show you how to do this. So what we’re going to do now, is we’re gonna do a practice session So if I were you, and you were me. The first time I ever did it, it was a good time. I did it. I was very lucky. But I actually screwed up somewhere. And with the skip cutter, because it skips, what happens is, is that you can only ever rotate across an item one time. That’s it. You got one time, to push heavy, and to cut all the way through, in order to make it work. You can never do it like this, like a pizza roller. Okay, because what happens is, that these rollers, which happen to me when I did it, if they changed where their position, and where they’re cutting, you actually could actually cut your project right out. So it depends on where the blades are coming down. So what we have to do, is that when we do this, we have to go that one inch in from where we were. So we actually did one inch extra of the project, and we’re gonna go one inch in, and we are going to use your ruler. Just like you see. And all we’re just going to do is that we’re gonna go right completely across the project, and you will hear it. (click click click goes the cutter) Do you hear that? It’s the actual snapping of the fabric. And so when you’re gonna lift it up, and you’re not going to see anything that is cut, and that’s because it has actually been microscopic cuts, as we go all the way across. But let me show you a close-up. So I’m just gonna put the light right above me. So what happened is, is that I just cut it, and you can’t even really see it, when you actually see it down, but if you pull it, you can see, the holes, that you just cut, and now because its fleece, it’s awesome. Right? So you can see it’s all the way through. So with the smaller crochet hook that I’m using, a three millimeter, uh what I have here, is that you can see that I can stick a crochet hook, evenly throughout all the holes. So when you’re going to crochet this, all you just gotta do is, just pull the project back a little bit, it exposes the hole, and you can stick in the crochet hook. So the skip cutter is a really great way to be able to speed your way, up, in order to do it. So if you ever wanted to do a project of just, um just like fleece, with a crochet border, all you just gotta do is skip cutter, about one inch in, and then just we’re gonna fold it, and then you just use those holes that you created, in order to create the foundation, as you go all the way around, and you get used to actually being able to pull it apart, and being able to see it. So if you pull too much, like crazy pull, then you will just literally tear your project. But because this is fleece, and the way that it’s fleece is made, you can pull on it pretty good, and you can have your stitches exposed, really quite easily, without really any hassle. So a skip cutter is definitely the way to go. So here’s an example of the fabric, and we have it cut, as you can see, if you pull it a little bit, you can see all the holes that are exposing, as you go along. So it looks like it’s perforated. Right? Because it is. So what we have is that this is the good side of the project. This is the wrong side, it’s not as clear. So if you are working on this, whatcha have to do is, that you have to make sure this fold is going towards the backside. Just like you see. So if you’re doing that, then this will appear here. And this here, is the back side. So it appears next to your crochet project. Also if you are working on this, and you’re not applying a back on this at all, make sure you’re also folding it towards the outside as well, so that you have a nice clean look on the front side of the project. So you have two options at this point. I’ve seen people with looking at the backside, and what they do, is that then they fold it up, because that’s the right way to do it, and they fold it up towards them, and then they start going in the holes, and they start working their way across. The way that it’s folded right here that you see, is not natural for the way that the yarn pulls on itself. So what happens, I find with myself, is that it wants to unfold itself, as you’re being able to crochet. So what I would recommend to you, is that look at the good side, and what I want you to do, is that I want you to fold it away from you, so it’s underneath. So you won’t see it, but there’s a reason for it, and I’ll show you that in just a moment. So using a smaller crochet hook. This is a three millimeter. It’s much smaller than the five and a half that I’ve been working with. You’re going to create a slipknot, and all you just want to do, is that you want to expose the very first holes that you can see. And so you don’t want one that’s partially cut. You just want the one that’s full, and you’re going to fold this over. Okay, so we just fold it. Just like this. And you were going to wrap the yarn over it, just like so, and pull through. You’re going to chain one, and then you were going to single crochet into that same one. Just like so. And so what happens now, is that the fold, is now permanently into the stitch in behind. This is the bad side of the projects. So the wrong side, so that’s where you want it to go. So you can just see the next one is just ready for you to go into. So, just slide your hook in. So we’re just gonna single crochet. So to advance, we have to do a chain one. Because it’s a smaller crochet hook, than normal, then you, in order to get the same kinda gauge that you’re working with currently, you want to chain one, and then go into the next hole that’s available to you. Make sure the fold is over, and single crochet. The loose end that you’re working with, I wantcha to make sure you’re trapping underneath. So chain one. So just coming in, so just go into the next hole, just push it through. And, make sure that this loose end, stays towards the backside of the project, so it gets hidden. So what’s happening here, is that the fold, is staying towards the backside of the project that you can’t see. And you just work your way across, your project, with just single crochets, in order to bring balance to it. So this is kinda how you would do it, if you were not applying a back, to your existing project. This is how you can apply a border to something that’s fleece, and then you can add more to your borders after this is completed. So just make sure you single crochet, chain one. And once you come to a corner, if you have that, all you’re just going to do is chain two, and then advance, and then continue to fold. Remember we have this cut? So if we just did that example that it would be cut like an inch, and it would be folded, and then the other one you just follow it straight down, as you be able to do the turn. So this is how you would apply that, but we’re gonna go back to our project now. And we’re going to skip cut the existing blanket, and that we’re gonna continue along, in order to do it, because we’re going to go even further, of attaching the sample, right to the existing back of a project, that’s already done. So what I’m gonna do, is that I’m cheat the system. So I put my cutting board aside for now, and I’ve just taken a empty box that I have, and I’m just laying out my box flat. Reason for it is that I want to use the entire cut. So I don’t want to shift this board, because the skip cutter, if you miss a line in any way, the holes will be misaligned. So it doesn’t matter if you’re looking at the front, or the back side at this particular point. It’s when you go to crochet it for the first time, that’s what it matters. So we’re the foundation just grab our straight edge, and skip cutter, and we’re just gonna lay it, out on top of the cardboard. And all I’m trying to really do is save my table. So, what we have, is that we have done an actual cut on the edge, and it was one inch, from the corner to the, to the where it’s cut, and then it was just a straight diagonal. So what I wanna do, is as I want to lay it down, and right where that corner chamfer is, I wanna lay it down, and this particular ruler that I have, is one inch. So all I’m just gonna do is this very firmly, I want to push it through, (cutting noises) and cut my fabric at the same time. So I’m kinda concentrating at the same point. And once I get close, do not pick it up. You’ll be sorry. So just move your ruler, push down hard on the ruler, and continue to do your cut. I learned the hard way. I’m telling you. So I can actually see the cut here, and, you can actually see in the cardboard, I can see where I’ve cut as well. So all I’m just gonna do is now rotate it, to the next one, and again lay down my ruler, and start off on the edge. And stop. Move the ruler. And keep on going. So my entire fleece has now been, uh skip cutted, and I can actually see it also here. So if I pull it a little bit away, I can see where is actually happening as well. So now, it’s about applying the border to it, so that I can attach it to my crochet project. So let’s start doing this blanket. So where am I going to start? So you’ll notice that we started, when we rolled, all the way to the edge and out. Now you did that on both sides, so when you go to pull this side, you’ll see that there is, if you can really see it here, you’ll see that there’s holes there. But if you pull in the other direction, you can see that about a 1 inch in, there’s holes in the other direction going this way. So when you go to start, whatcha wanna do, is you wanna fold it towards the back. Okay so this is the wrong side of the project, and you were going to start. So if you pull it apart, I can see that there’s the holes that are on this edge here, right here and this is here, where the other holes are, and that’s where I wanna start. So I don’t wanna start on an edge, and I wanna fold it back. I’m going to take my yarn, and with the slipknot, I want to apply it to the hook, and I wanna pull through. Okay, and then I wanna chain one, and then going back into the same one, I want to single crochet. Okay, so you can see that where I started, it’s not right on the edge of this one here. So I’ve, now gonna chain one, and now I’m just gonna move along the edge. Okay, and if you can’t see it, just kind of force your hook, to where you think it is, because chances are your hook will just fall right into it. And you’re just gonna go into the next one, making sure you go back, like the yarn is backward, and then just single crochet, chain one, and keep on moving. So just keep on moving down. Sometimes it’s easy to see the, um holes, and it all depends on your light too, if you can see them as well. But if you can’t, just look where the other ones are kind of spaced out, and then chances are the next one is in the same kind of spacing distance. So just kinda coming down, going through, a single crochet, chain one, and then coming back into the next one. So when you get to a corner, what’s gonna happen is that you’re going to chain two, and then you’re just gonna continue. So you’ll fold down the other side here, and you’ll do the turn, and then come down the other side, and you’re gonna do that for all four sides. So please do that, and I’ll see you back here in just a moment. When you get to a corner, just like you see here, you wanna look for where those holes are coming down this seam, and that’s where you’re going to stop. So you’re not gonna go all the way to the edge. Just like you see here. So all you’re just gonna do at this particular point, is that you’re going to fold, and I can’t go any further, because when I go to do that, this one is here. So chain two. So instead of chaining one, chain two, and then start working down the holes in the other direction, going down. And then just fold back, and because the way that you cut the chamfer, is that when it goes to fold down in the back, it won’t be a lot of extra fabric there. So now you’re just gonna work your way down the other side, and you’re gonna do that every time you hit a corner, in order to get it to, sit flat. So you’re just gonna stop exactly, where the fold is going to begin. Just like that. So continue to do that all the way around. So when you get all the way back around, you’re gonna be on the final corner. Just make sure you chain two, and then slip stitch to the beginning, and then fasten off. So you’re gonna fasten off completely, and you’re gonna get your other project ready. And you’re now going to do this. Now if you were doing a blanket, and you just wanted to finish this off, just weave in the edges nicely. And you now have a new fleece blanket, with the crochet edge. Instead of doing any kind of sewing, you have a nice crochet edge, and that’s kinda how you would do that. But we’re going to continue to move on, and we’re gonna attach this now to the back of the existing blanket, in order to continue along, to adding fleece, to your crochet. So let’s get prepared, and let’s begin. So what we have to do, is that we have to lay down the good project, that you want, face down. Okay, reason for it, is that when we go to crochet, and I wanna be a paying attention to what is the upside on this, and all I’m just gonna do is that I’m going to face it down like this. Now the other project that we have, the fleece project, I want to have it face up. But I want to pay attention to where the characters are, so that they are facing in the same direction if you’re using it. So see how the characters are facing away from me. So when I pick this up, the POW should be up, and the characters will be in the same direction. Now the reason why I’ve chosen this to be on my front side, is that we want to maintain what we already see. So what we see at this particular point, is that this is the right side of the crochet project. So if I start with the other side first, what’s going to happen, is that the boarder attaching, is going to appear on the wrong side. So we’re gonna go right into a corner. Okay and I want to attach my yarn with a slip stitch. So create a slipknot first, and going in. So go right into the chain two space of the fleece itself, and put it on, and pull through, and through. So it’s pulling through both. Just lock it with a chain one, and into that same one, I wantcha to put in three single crochets. So that allows you to turn the corner. So whenever you hit the corners in these, you want to do that. So whatcha just have to be mindful, is that this just eyeing it up, and making it look good. So whatcha have to just do, is that you come to the next stitch available to you. Like so. So right on the front blue, and then in the back, what I want to do, is I don’t want to go into the chain one space, or where it’s attaching. Okay, and I wanna continue to go in, and just single crochet. So advanced one. So I’m not chaining one. I’m just single crocheting, and matching it. So what I want to pay attention to, is that I’m just eyeing it up to make it look good. So the skip cutter doesn’t know the hook size that you used, and it really doesn’t matter. The goal is, is that you’re going to try to get it as evenly as possible. So for example, say that the fleece is off by a little bit, you can go into the exact same stitch in the front, and advance one stitch in the back. So just go up one more, and you can really work it in, and make it, fake it. Look, make it like you can make it, really look good. So whatcha wanna just do, is you wanna keep an eye on how you’re progressing across. And you wanna make sure that when you get to the other side, that you’re getting it as close as you can, to the very end, and you wanna do that. So when you get to the other side, you wanna put three, single crochets right into the corner, and keep on advancing, all the way around, and this will permanently attach. But we’re not quite done at that point. So what we’ll do, is that will continue to attach. Keep eyeing it up, and making it look good. And just do a single crochet attach, from the front, to the fleece. So now what we have to do for the final step, is that we have the fleece attached, all the way on the outside. But you’ll notice that the fleece is loose, from the crochet project. So right where you’ve done joins in the project, as you can see, you want to attach that, then go right through the project, right through the fleece. So using a spare piece of string, leave an extra long tail, and I’ll make sense in just a moment. And create a slip knot. On the other side, put it in a really sharp needle. This is take number two, because my needle wasn’t sharp enough. So what we want to do, is go down to the project, right through the fleece on the other side. Okay, and pop it through, but don’t pull it all the way through, because you wanna go up through to a different spot, and back out to the other side, once again. And what this will do, is it’ll hold the fleece to the project. So you’re gonna pull through, and that slipknot that we created, we’re just going to feed it through, and lock it. And just tie it, one more time, just through the top of the project only. You don’t wanna wreck the back picture, so don’t go through more than once, and just tie it. So now remember to hide in your loose ends. You’re going to travel through the project a total of three times. So back, through the project once. Twice. And three times. So once you have that one done, you can just cut it right down into the project, and then you have that extra long tail that I’ve asked you to leave, and you’re gonna do the exact same process, and get it right down into the project, and cut it out. And you’ll never see it. And then on the back of the project. So you’ll do that. On the back of the project, you will see, really carefully. See? It’s almost impossible to see, where it’s joining, and this will hold the fleece back to the project. So until next time, I’m Mikey on behalf of The Crochet Crowd. We’ll see you again real soon. Bye-bye. This is we will never meet again
